Bugs in the Snow, First Day of Spring

This was just crazy, the snow is piled up to the windows so
we can see like a cross section of the snow
kind of antfarm styles, and my mother
always told me not to eat snow, because there were bugs in it
I never believed her till today! 2 Flys and they are alive!

Watercolor of Matthew

I decided to do a watercolor painting
of my little godson Matthew. I decided it was time to practice
what I preach and really plan stuff out. It looks like a long process but
it really only took me like 2 hours from start to finish I spent more time planning
it out than I did on the actual painting, It was great because it made it almost fool proof
Here's what I did:

I started with a sketch from a Photo
showing the areas of color change
Then I worked out some color studies
in Pencil crayon. This first one was getting to

so i decided to SIMPLIFY

first layer of light washes
Added in some more washes of shadows

More details and salt texture to the background
cause it makes it feel a bit wintery

Final Painting all framed up,
forgot to turn off my flash though,
